An extremely easy find. The mark is located on the south side of Rodeo Road in front of the LDS Church. The orange carsonite witness post leans slightly, but is quite visible.

I found it in good shape today, as described.

The marker is a Santa Fe County survey marker, and is currently marked by a Witness Post, as the LDS church is doing some landscaping or renovating and the ground around the marker has all been tilled.

I expect that the marker will survive the renovation.

  • The X, Y, and Z were computed from the position and the ellipsoidal ht.
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The ellipsoidal height was determined by GPS observations and is referenced to NAD 83.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
